Study – Clinical clues for autoimmunity and neuroinflammation in patients with autistic regression.
RESULTS:
The charts of 206 children with ASD and 33 diagnosed with autistic regression variant were reviewed. The incidence of febrile illness in the 6 months prior to initial parental concern was significantly higher in the children with autistic regression compared with those with ASD (30% vs 0%; p<0.001). The overall prevalence of familial autoimmunity was also higher in children with autistic regression compared with those with ASD (33% vs 12%; p<0.001). Type 1 diabetes and autoimmune thyroiditis were both more common in families with children with autistic regression. Other non-immune risk factors did not differ between the two groups.
INTERPRETATION:
Our findings suggest that predisposition to autoimmunity, and immune/inflammatory activation, may be associated with autistic regression.

The Vaccine Science Contradiction
The modern human race has been thriving and evolving for at least the last 200,000 years according to Anthropologists. Vaccines have only been around for less than 200 years. So how did humans survive for the 199,800 years before that. The answer is that you are born with a fully functioning immune system, capable of self-immunization. Vaccines are not required for immunization. Your body does it automatically. Just like 10,000 generations of your ancestors who also survived without vaccines. If your immune system didn’t work automatically to keep you alive then you would have never been born.

Episode 7 of The Truth About Vaccines is NOW PLAYING. Tonight’s episode is all about Vaccine alternatives and Freedom of Choice. Super important for you to see.

Aluminium Adjuvants Have Never Been Approved For Use In Vaccination
In a press release, describing Professor Exley’s latest paper, the founder of the Dwoskin Family Foundation, Mrs. Claire Dwoskin wrote:
“Research at Keele University led by Professor Christopher Exley aims to understand the toxicity of aluminum adjuvants in vaccinations and their latest findings are now published in Nature’s ‘Scientific Reports.
In a project funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC) and the Dwoskin Foundation the group at Keele investigated the relationship between the physicochemical properties of aluminum adjuvants and the immune response. Specifically, they show that the reaction of the aluminum adjuvant at the injection site will determine its subsequent fate and therefore its activity both at the injection site and away from the injection site.
One form of aluminum adjuvant which is most commonly used in vaccines is an aluminum hydroxyphosphate salt and is more toxic at the injection site than the second form of aluminum adjuvant, also commonly used in vaccines, aluminum oxyhydroxide salt. However, the latter is more easily loaded into immune reactive cells with the possibility to be transported throughout the body. It is suggested by the Keele research that this loading of aluminum into viable cells offers a mechanism whereby significant amounts of aluminum, a known neurotoxin, might be translocated throughout the body and even across the blood brain barrier and into the central nervous system.” [2, 3, 4]

Shingles Vaccine Zostavax Is Causing What It’s Designed To Prevent
April 19, 2017
By now I think most people have seen the commercials on television telling us that if we’ve ever had the chicken pox at any point in our lives, then the shingles virus is already inside of us. As it stands right now, there is a vaccine for shingles called Zostavax, but what we’re finding out now about this vaccine makes it seem like it might be pretty dangerous or at least cause some side effects that are actually the same as what we’d see from shingles. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins talks with Attorney Troy Bouk about the dangers associated with Zostavax

Dying 13 Year Old Diagnoses Her Own HPV Vaccine Injury that Stumped Doctors
April 20, 2017
Health Impact News Editor Comments
One of the true tragedies in modern medicine is the refusal to consider vaccine injuries when diagnosing or treating disease. The U.S. government acknowledges that people die and are injured by vaccines, as is evidenced from the Department of Justice’s quarterly reports on settlements in vaccine court: http://vaccineimpact.com/vaccine-injuries-and-deaths-compensated-through-vaccine-court/
However, medical students are given no training in recognizing or treating vaccine injuries, and no studies are ever conducted to find out why some children suffer from vaccines while others do not.
In this story out of the U.K., a 13 year old girl accomplishes something her doctors could not do, and that was diagnose her own life-threatening disease by researching all of the possibilities, without excluding vaccine injuries, something that apparently handicapped her doctors. She discovered that she suffered from an autoimmune disease after receiving the HPV vaccine.

Baby’s Health Rapidly Declines After Receiving 13 Vaccines at One Time – Mom Accused of Abuse for Disagreeing with Doctors
April 20, 2017
Durenda and her son KJ on his 1st birthday, before he had 8 shots in one day.
by Health Impact News/MedicalKidnap.com Staff
A young Georgia mother had no idea that a routine trip to the pediatrician’s office for her son’s 1 year check-up would change her son’s life forever, and leave her fighting the state for custody of her own son. When the nurse-practitioner told her that her son was a little behind on his shots and they would need to catch up, Durenda Whitehead didn’t question the need for the vaccines. She did, however, question the safety of giving 13 vaccines at once.
Durenda’s pediatrician assured her that it was fine:
I can give up to 20 at one time.
Durenda was unaware of a research study published in the summer 2016 edition of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons by Neil Z. Miller entitled, “Combining Childhood Vaccines at One Visit Is Not Safe.” In a press release, Miller wrote:
Our study showed that infants who receive several vaccines concurrently…are significantly more likely to be hospitalized or die when compared with infants who receive fewer vaccines simultaneously.
Baby’s Health Declines After 13 Vaccines in One Day
During his first year of life, little KJ had a few bouts with respiratory illness, but on January 16, 2017, he was healthy, happy, and active.

Skip that Newborn Vitamin K Shot
How much synthetic vitamin K is in the shot? Shockingly, the national standard mandated by most states for US hospitals to administer is over 100 times the infant’s RDA of this nutrient. Since studies have linked large doses of vitamin K with childhood cancers and leukemia, this large dose of synthetic K administered within minutes of birth seems questionable at best.
The fact is that medical science still does not know that much about the metabolic fate of vitamin K. Little to no unmetabolized vitamin K shows up in urine or bile. This is disturbing given the fact that vitamin K is a fat soluble vitamin and therefore has the potential to accumulate in body tissues. More disturbing is that the liver of a newborn does not begin to function until 3 or 4 days after birth. As a result, this little being has very limited to no ability to detoxify the large dose of synthetic vitamin K and all other the dangerous ingredients in the injection cocktail including:

– Phenol (carbolic acid – a poisonous substance derived from coal tar)
– Benzyl alcohol (preservative)
– Propylene glycol (better known as “edible” antifreeze)
– Acetic acid (astringent, antimicrobial agent)
– Hydrochloric acid
– Lecithin
– Castor oil

The manufacturer’s insert included with the shot includes the following warning:
Severe reactions, including fatalities, have occurred during and immediately after intravenous injection of phytonadione [synthetic Vitamin K] even when precautions have been taken to dilute the vitamin and avoid rapid infusion ….
The manufacturer’s insert is no exaggeration of the risks. On October 17, 2013, a case of anaphylactic shock in a newborn from the synthetic vitamin K shot was reported making the possibility of death from this shot a a very real side effect
Source:
Anaphylactic shock due to vitamin K in a newborn and review of literature
Abstract
Newborn infants are born with an immature innate immunity. They are less likely to develop anaphylaxis since their immune system is weaker than older infants and children. There are only a few reports of side effects after vitamin K injection in neonates although prophylaxis against hemorrhagic disease of the newborn with this drug has been in routine practice in all over the world for many years. We herein report a case of anaphylactic shock developing after the intramuscular administration of vitamin K1 in a newborn. To our knowledge, this patient is the first case of neonatal anaphylactic shock developing due to intramuscular administration of vitamin K1. We suggest the clinicians should be aware of this possibility of potentially fatal adverse effect occurring with intramuscular administration of vitamin K1.
Does this make any sense to you? It makes absolutely no sense to me. How could anyone say that this shot is safe and effective for newborns?

Is There Vaccine Cause-And-Correlation Regarding The Dramatic Rise In Children’s Chronic Diseases?
Posted on April 18, 2017
Since the introduction of CDC’s hyper-vaccine schedule, which saw children’s vaccines schedules increase from 10 to 69 vaccines after the 1986  National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act was passed into law, very young children are contracting chronic “old age type” diseases early in life—an anomaly heretofore not experienced demographically.
First off, obesity rates (2013-2014) for U.S. children between the ages of 6 and 11 years was 17.4% [1]  Three leading causes of death in children between 1 and 4 years of age were congenital malformations, deformations and chromosomal abnormalities. [1]   Mandatory pregnancy vaccines have impact upon growing fetuses.  For children 5 to 14 years of age, it’s cancer! [1]   However, according to Contemporary Pediatrics [2] 2014 published data, cancer was the second leading cause of death for children between 1 and 9 years of age (11.8% of deaths).  For infants, the third leading cause of death was sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS, 8.4%)—something that seemingly appeared in pediatric medicine context concomitantly with the increase in mandated vaccines, specifically with multi-valent vaccines, i.e., numerous vaccines given at one time.  However, the CDC’s information about SIDS claims vaccines do not cause SIDS.  Try telling that to many parents.
According to Focus for Health, 27% of U.S. children live with chronic diseases! [3]   That website asks the question, “Why are today’s children sicker than ever before?”  The answer: “While genes may play a role in obesity, asthma and ADHD, environmental and social changes are behind the surge, researchers said.”5 [Children Sicker Now Than in Past, Harvard Report Says] [4]   That Harvard Report found a fourfold increase in childhood obesity; twice the asthma rate since the 1980s; and regarding diabetes: White children’s rate was 26.1 per 100,000; black children, 25.4 per 100,000; American Indian youth, 25 per 100,000 including the highest rate of type-2 diabetes. [4] According to the CDC, one in six children in the USA has a developmental disability, which represents a 17% rise between 1997 and 2008. [7]
Furthermore, are you aware the cost of fully vaccinating a child has increased by 2,700% during the last decade?  Vaccines are extremely profitable for manufacturers, but very costly in terms of adverse health effects, medical bills for parents, and social issues (day care, school, jobs, welfare benefits, etc.) for infants, toddlers, teens and adults.

The Dangers Of Vaccines and Vaccination
Vaccines Are Unavoidably Unsafe
According to the US Food and Drug Administration, safety assessments for vaccines have not often included toxicity studies because vaccines have not been viewed as inherently toxic. Yet vaccines are legally defined as unavoidably unsafe.
It is not just childhood vaccines that come with substantial risk. Influenza vaccines, vaccines for sexually transmitted diseases, and others contain similar risks for adverse events. Also troubling is that vaccination is recommended now for pregnant women, even though vaccine package inserts clearly state they have not been tested on pregnant women, so the effects on the fetus can’t be known.
In the 1960s only a handful of childhood vaccines were given. The current CDC recommended vaccine schedule for children now has over 30 vaccines by the time a child turns 6 and an additional potential for up to 30 more by the time they reach 18. Could this increase be linked to our declining health? For example, currently:

    One in six children in the US has a learning disability
Over 50% suffer from some type of chronic illness.
Cancer is the leading cause of death in our children
Autism rates have soared from 1 in 10,000 in 1990 to 1 in 68 today

Since genetic mutations change slowly over generations, we must look to environmental causes for these changes. While other environmental toxins certainly are at play in these statistics, disregarding the potential role to the amounts of toxin injected into children through vaccines is not only bad public policy, it is bad science. By disregarding the role of vaccines in our statistics for infant mortality and chronic diseases, we could be doing more harm than good in mandating, or even advising, them.
Vaccine Adverse Effects: Known Risks
The list of adverse side effects for vaccines is long and troubling. A quick scan of the Vaccine Injury Table kept by the Health Resource Center for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reveals that compensation for injury is possible from a variety of the most common vaccines given to children.
Adverse events are the reason the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has paid out over 3 billion dollars from 1988 – 2016 despite the fact that only 1 in 5 claims receives any compensation at all. Studies reveal that a small fraction of those injured by vaccines ever file any claim at all since most doctors reject the notion that a problem was caused by a vaccine despite the reality that such problems are listed on the manufacturers product insert. You can learn more by reading this fficial document: National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.
Vaccines: Adverse Effects List
Various vaccines are linked to the following serious adverse reactions:

    Anaphylactic shock
Aseptic meningitis, meningitis
Bell’s palsy, facial palsy, isolated cranial nerve palsy
Blood disorders such as thrombocytopenic purpura (a disease that destroys platelets need for clotting)
Brachial neuritis
Cerebrovascular accident (stroke)
Chronic rheumatoid arthritis
Convulsions, seizures, febrile seizure
Death
Encephalopathy and encephalitis (brain swelling)
Hearing loss
Guillain-Barré syndrome
Immune system disorders
Lymphatic system disorders
Multiple sclerosis
Myocarditis
Nervous system disorders
Neurological syndromes including autism
Paralysis and myelitis including transverse myelitis
Peripheral neuropathy
Pneumonia and lower respiratory infections
Skin and tissue disorders including eczema

What The Pharmaceutical Companies Don’t Want You To Know About VACCINES… Paperback – 2009
This book is a must read for parents, soon to be parents and physicians who regularly administer vaccines. There are over 500 pages of information proving that vaccines are not responsible for the eradication of communicable disease; vaccines have done nothing but promote chronic disease and illness; and vaccines contain the most toxic chemicals known to man. Furthermore, there are close to 2,000 references that back up the information in this book. The references are from studies published in peer reviewed medical journals, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Food and Drug Administration, the prestigious Institute of Medicine, and from the United States Congressional Reform Committee. Lastly, this book contains all the U.S. licensed vaccines and the ingredients each vaccine contains. The ingredients of each vaccine come directly from the pharmaceutical companies’ vaccine package insert which are cross referenced with the National Library of Medicine for their human health effects-You will be SHOCKED at the side effects these vaccine ingredients have on the human body! FACT: If anyone from the medical community wants to argue with the information in this book, they will argue among themselves-it is their information!

Ever wonder WHY we NEED a religious exemption from vaccines?

Countless teenage girls suffer paralysis, blood clots, brain damage and chronic pain from force-vaccination of Gardasil’s HPV “shot in the dark”
Friday, March 17, 2017 by: S.D. Wells
(Natural News) A sexually transmitted disease called human papillomavirus (HPV) is the only form of cancer known to be contagious, but what the medical community won’t tell parents of teenagers and preteens is that HPV is easily defeated by a normal functioning immune system. Of the 120 or more different strains of HPV, only about 15 are carcinogenic, and the HPV vaccines, which have never been proven safe or effective in any clinical trials, literally take a shot in the dark at a couple of these strains, much like the haphazard flu shot administered every year to tens of millions of unsuspecting victims of neurological poisoning.
Still, the CDC and rogue hacks and shills from Big Pharma use scare tactics to all but force-vaccinate girls as young as 9-years-old with sodium chloride and two versions of the dormant HPV cancers hidden in protein and genetically modified organisms.
Scare tactics and medical propaganda con mothers into getting their young daughters jabbed with deadly neurotoxins
“You won’t be able to have children if you get cervical cancer.” “You can catch cancer from having sex and die.” “The shot will make you immune to cancer.” “The shot prevents cancer.” “You wanna have children later? You better get this shot.” The propaganda is mind-blowing, and it unfortunately works. It convinces parents to do the unthinkable: have their little girls (and boys) jabbed with some of the most dangerous carcinogens on earth to “prevent” a couple of strains of a rather benign, pre-cancerous STD. It doesn’t even make sense. What’s even worse is that the HPV vaccine’s protection effect wears off after a few years (as does the cancer itself under normal immune conditions), so what’s the use of taking the risk of getting jabbed with all these neurotoxins? Just how young are kids becoming promiscuous enough to worry about STDs anyhow?
More than 10,000 adverse events have been reported from victims of the HPV scam, including blood clots in the heart and lungs, anaphylactic shock, loss of muscle use and seizures. Most infections from HPV are benign and cleared rapidly by the human immune system and never progress to cervical cancer, or even precancerous lesions of the vagina, vulva or anus. No valid reason for administering the HPV vaccine has ever even been established.
Why are HPV vaccines, like Gardasil (made by Merck) and Cervarix (made by GSK) so dangerous? Answer: They’re made with “denatured” forms and fragmented strains of the virus, meaning the virus is weakened and can remain dormant for months, if not years, so if you do get the virus later, who’s to say you didn’t get it from the vaccine itself? No studies on this have ever been conducted, nor will they likely ever be. Plus, Gardasil contains aluminum, sodium chloride, polysorbate 80 and l-histidine, the latter of which interferes with the brain’s defenses against metal toxins. That means the aluminum has a heightened chance of crossing the blood/brain barrier. Got brain damage? No wonder. The following are just four examples of the hundreds (if not thousands) of girls permanently damaged by HPV vaccines.

Stronger More Toxic Gardasil Vaccine Approved by FDA: Will More Girls Suffer and Die?
March 23, 2017
Malfeasance is when a public official violates the public trust by performing an act that is wrongful, legally unjustified, or contrary to law. Nonfeasance is the failure to act where there is a duty to act. Misfeasance is conduct that is lawful but inappropriate. Perhaps, when it comes to the recent approval of Gardasil 9 all of these apply.
10 December 2014: The FDA approved the use of a reportedly “new and improved” version of Gardasil, which will be marketed as Gardasil 9. According to the FDA approval letter, this action was taken without consultation with VRBPAC (the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee) which is responsible for reviewing and evaluating data concerning the safety, effectiveness, and appropriate use of vaccines and related biological products.
The FDA approval letter, signed by Marion Gruber, Director of Office of Vaccines Research and Review CBER,  states the reason for bypassing the advice of VRBPAC writing:
”We did not refer your application to the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee because our review of information submitted in your BLA, including the clinical study design and trial results, did not raise concerns or controversial issues which would have benefited from an advisory committee discussion.”
So, the Office of Vaccines Research and Review, Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER) committee took it upon themselves to decide there were ”no concerns or controversial issues” regarding the approval of Gardasil 9?
This division of CBER decided there would be no benefit from ”an advisory committee discussion”?
According to their own mission statement, the FDA is ”responsible for protecting the public health by assuring the safety, efficacy and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, medical devices, our nation’s food supply, cosmetics, and products that emit radiation.”
The FDA, and all committees associated with the FDA, are public officials and therefore obliged to act in the public’s best interest particularly when it comes to health and safety issues.
Is bypassing advisory committee discussions regarding Gardasil 9’s potential safety and efficacy acting in the public’s best interest, or is it malfeasance, nonfeasance and/or misfeasance?
Gardasil 9 Facts: More than DOUBLE the amount of Toxic Aluminum!
CBER decided there was no need for VRBPAC to review or evaluate any data concerning the safety, effectiveness, and appropriate use of Merck’s proposed Gardasil 9 vaccine before making a decision to approve the nine-valent HPV vaccine. This move is particularly disturbing when one considers the worldwide controversy surrounding Gardasil’s safety, effectiveness and appropriate use.

Dr. Yehuda Shoenfeld says vaccines cause auto-immunity. It’s really not a question of “IF” there are adverse events from vaccines, it’s a question of “how often?”, “how severe?”, and whether it’s worth the trade-off? You can listen to the pre-eminent expert on vaccine-induced autoimmunity in the world, or you can go to your mainstream pediatrician who will tell you that vaccines have “no risk, lots of benefits.” It’s really up to you!
This is just a clip from his talk, entire talk in comments below, as well as Dr. Shoenfeld’s new TEXTBOOK, called “Vaccines and Autoimmunity”!
By the way, “autoimmunity” includes all the crazy epidemics in our kids that weren’t around in the 1980s or earlier: asthma, food allergies, skin rashes, etc. “Some of the main examples of autoimmune disorders include diabetes mellitus type 1 (IDDM), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Graves’ disease of the thyroid, Sjögren’s syndrome, Churg-Strauss Syndrome, Coeliac disease, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and idiopathic thrombocytopenic purport.”
Listen to Dr. Shoenfeld: “Dr. Yehuda Shoenfeld is on the editorial board of 43 journals in the fields of rheumatology and autoimmunity and is the founder and editor of the Israel Medical Association Journal, the representative journal of science and medicine in the English language in Israel. He is also is the founder and editor of “Autoimmunity Reviews” and co-editor of “The Journal of Autoimmunity”. His clinical and scientific works focus on autoimmune and rheumatic diseases, and he has published more than 1700 papers in journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine, Nature, the Lancet, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, the Journal of Clinical Investigation, the Journal of Immunology, Blood, the Journal of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, the Journal of Experimental Medicine, Circulation, Cancer, and others, and his articles have had over 31,000 citations. He has written more than three hundred and fifty chapters in books, and has authored and edited 25 books.”

A study from West Africa’s Guinea-Bissau discovered that all-cause infant mortality more than doubled after the introduction of the DTP vaccination.
An observational study from the West African country Guinea-Bissau titled, “The Introduction of Diphtheria-Tetanus-Pertussis and Oral Polio Vaccine Among Young Infants in an Urban African Community: A Natural Experiment,” [i] examined the introduction of diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) and oral polio vaccine (OPV) in an urban community in Guinea-Bissau in the early 1980s. The World Health Organization introduced the Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) in low-income countries in the 1970s with the goal of universal immunization for all children. In the introduction, the study’s authors state, “Except for the measles vaccines, surprisingly few studies examined the introduction of vaccines and their impact on child survival.”
The purpose of the study was to examine what happens to child survival when DTP and OPV were introduced in low-income countries. A community study [ii] of the state of nutrition and family structure found that severe malnutrition was not evident in urban Guinea-Bissau although it was initially assumed to be the main cause of the under-five mortality rate.
The study findings emerged from a child population that had been followed with 3-monthly nutritional weighing sessions since 1978. From June 1981 DTP and OPV were offered from 3 months of age at these sessions. Due to the 3-monthly intervals between sessions, the children were allocated by birthday in a ‘natural experiment’ to receive vaccinations early or late between 3 and 5 months of age. The study included children who were greater than 6 months of age when vaccinations started and children born until the end of December 1983. The researchers compared mortality between 3 and 5 months of age of DTP-vaccinated and not-yet-DTP- vaccinated children in Cox proportional hazard models.
When mortality was compared, the mortality hazard ratio (HR) among 3-5-month-old children having received the DTP (±OPV) was 5.00 compared with not-yet-DTP-vaccinated children [i.e. a 400% increase]. According to the authors, differences in background factors did not explain the effect. All-cause infant mortality after 3 months of age increased after the introduction of these vaccines (2.12 (1.07–4.19)) [i.e. a 212% increase]. However, the study findings revealed the negative effect was particularly strong for children who had received DTP-only and no OPV (10.0 (2.61–38.6)).
The researchers concluded:
“DTP was associated with increased mortality; OPV may modify the effect of DTP.”

Study – The Introduction of Diphtheria-Tetanus-Pertussis and Oral Polio Vaccine Among Young Infants in an Urban African Community: A Natural Experiment
Abstract
Background
We examined the introduction of diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) and oral polio vaccine (OPV) in an urban community in Guinea-Bissau in the early 1980s.
Methods
The child population had been followed with 3-monthly nutritional weighing sessions since 1978. From June 1981 DTP and OPV were offered from 3 months of age at these sessions. Due to the 3-monthly intervals between sessions, the children were allocated by birthday in a ‘natural experiment’ to receive vaccinations early or late between 3 and 5 months of age. We included children who were <6 months of age when vaccinations started and children born until the end of December 1983. We compared mortality between 3 and 5 months of age of DTP-vaccinated and not-yet-DTP-vaccinated children in Cox proportional hazard models.
Results
Among 3–5-month-old children, having received DTP (±OPV) was associated with a mortality hazard ratio (HR) of 5.00 (95% CI 1.53–16.3) compared with not-yet-DTP-vaccinated children. Differences in background factors did not explain the effect. The negative effect was particularly strong for children who had received DTP-only and no OPV (HR = 10.0 (2.61–38.6)). All-cause infant mortality after 3 months of age increased after the introduction of these vaccines (HR = 2.12 (1.07–4.19)).
Conclusion
DTP was associated with increased mortality; OPV may modify the effect of DTP.

Vaccine News -Doctors Who Discovered Cancer Enzymes in Vaccines all Found Murdered

Doctors Who Discovered Cancer Enzymes in Vaccines all Found Murdered
Rory Hall — February 27, 2016
Nagalese prevents vitamin D being produced In the body
Not long ago, Neon Nettle reported on the epidemic of doctors being murdered, most of which were in Florida, U.S. The scientists all shared a common trait, they had all discovered that nagalase enzyme protein was being added to vaccines which were then administrated to humans.(SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO)
Nagalese is what prevents vitamin D from being produced in the body, which is the body’s main defence to naturally kill cancer cells.
According to Thebigriddle.com: Nagalase is a protein that’s also created by all cancer cells. This protein is also found in very high concentrations in autistic children. And they’re PUTTING it in our vaccines!!
This prevents the body from utilizing the Vitamin D necessary to fight cancer and prevent autism. Nagalese disables the immune system. It’s also known to cause Type 2 Diabetes. So basically…they weren’t killing these doctors because they had found the cure to cancer or were successfully treating autism… they’re killing them because these Dr’s had been researching and had the evidence that the vaccines they’re injecting our precious children with are CAUSING our current cancer and autism crisis!!
And that it’s obviously being done knowingly and on purpose! The Dr’s they killed in FL had been collaborating and were getting ready to go public with the information.
Depopulation 101..add poison to vaccines…make it law that all children must be injected to attend school. Slow kill methods. They think they’re being fair w/ their “survival of the fittest” type mentality. Only the best genes survive? These people have no souls.
Dr Ted Broer broke it on The Hagmann & Hagmann Report and it took them a whole hour just to get him on air b/c their 3 hour show was brought down and every line they tried to use kept disconnecting…and then their servers were brought down.

Murdered Holistic Doctors Discovered Cancer-Causing Enzyme Being Added to All Vaccines
So apparently the holistic doctors who were all being killed in FL had found out via their research that the nagalase enzyme protein is INTENTIONALLY being added to the population via immunizations. Nagalase STOPS vitamin D from binding to the Gc protein. This completely strips a human being’s body of it’s natural ability to kill cancer cells.
Nagalase is a protein that’s also created by all cancer cells. This protein is also found in very high concentrations in autistic children. And they’re PUTTING it in our vaccines!! This prevents the body from utilizing the Vitamin D necessary to fight cancer and prevent autism. Nagalese disables the immune system. It’s also known to cause Type 2 Diabetes. So basically…they weren’t killing these doctors because they had found the cure to cancer or were successfully treating autism… they’re killing them because these Dr’s had been researching and had the evidence that the vaccines they’re injecting our precious children with are CAUSING our current cancer and autism crisis!! And that it’s obviously being done knowingly and on purpose! The Dr’s they killed in FL had been collaborating and were getting ready to go public with the information.

12 Holistic Doctors have now died within a little over 90 Days
Tim Brown — October 13, 2015
Back in July, I reported that five holistic doctors had met untimely and suspicious deaths within 30 days and that five more were still missing. Within days of that report, two more doctors were also found dead under suspicious circumstances, which made 7 inside of a month. Now, within the span of 90 days, eleven doctors have been found dead under suspicious circumstances, and just prior to the writing of this article a twelfth holistic doctor, Marie Paas was found dead due to an apparent suicide.
The woman who broke these stories, Erin Elizabeth of Health Nut News, spoke to Luke Rudkowski and recounted that three of the doctors were found outside in the woods, who died of alleged suicide, four established murders and several who died suddenly for no apparent reason. Even family members have questioned their deaths since autopsies don’t seem to confirm a reason for their deaths.

2 More Doctors Go Missing, after 3 Found Dead in 2 Weeks
By Erin Elizabeth – July 5, 2015
UPDATE: Chief Deputy Mcarty of the Sheriff’s Dept in charge of the case of missing Dr. Jeffrey Whiteside MD, is directly asked if there is a tie to the doctor’s disappearance to  my breaking stories about other doctors who are missing or were found dead. The Chief says the following about my articles and any correlation:
McCarty said that information has been given to investigators to determine if there’s any correlation to the Whiteside case.
“We haven’t been contacted by any other law-enforcement agency or by the FBI or anything like that,” he said.
Second update:
Just hours or days after authorities said this referencing the stories I broke to the world (as gently as possible) they found Dr. Whiteside’s body right in the *very* area he was last seen (so that’s another mystery) and there was a .22 caliber found discharged by his body, but no other details are being given.
2 More Doctors Go Missing
In the past 2 weeks I’ve reported on 3 alternative doctors (2 MD’s and 1 DC, PhD) who were found dead in less than two weeks (Click through for stories and funds for families as well as numbers to report tips to authorities)  It was with heavy heart, as I knew a few of the doctors and have many mutual friends with all three.

Monsanto, Pesticides, Vaccines, & Autism: If We Continue On This Route, “All Children Will Be Autistic By 2025”
Posted on 2017/02/18 By Arjun Walia via Collective Evolution
“Children today are sicker than they were a generation ago. From childhood cancers to autism, birth defects and asthma, a wide range of childhood diseases and disorders are on the rise. Our assessment of the latest science leaves little room for doubt; pesticides are one key driver of this sobering trend.”
— October 2012 report by Pesticide Action Network North America (PANNA)
(source: https://emagazine.com/archive/)
(source: Glyphosate The Elephant in the Room)
The rate at which autism instances have risen in the last 40 years is simply staggering. In 1975, 1 in every 5,000 people developed autism. In 1985, it was 1 in every 2,500, and in 2005, it was 1 in every 166.
Today it is approximately 1 in every 68 children. (source: http://www.nature.com/news/2011/111102/pdf/479022a.pdf)
“If it is an environmental cause that’s contributing to an increase, we certainty want to find it.”
– Craig Newschaffer, an epidemiologist at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (source: https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/autism-rise-driven-by-environment/)
Research continues to surface indicating that autism goes far beyond just genetics, and that we may need to consider multiple factors (like environmental toxins, prescription drugs, etc) when trying to figure out what’s going on, and why autism rates continue to climb exponentially.
“It’s time to start looking for the environmental culprits responsible for the remarkable increase in the rate of autism in California.”
– Irva Hertz–Picciotto, epidemiology professor at University of California, David
Evidence is now pointing to the fact that agricultural pesticides (among various other environmental toxins) might play a large role in the rapid increase in autism rates over the past few decades. A senior researcher from The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Dr. Stephanie Seneff is doing her part to create more awareness of these facts, which have yet to make big news in the world of mainstream medicine.
At a recent event sponsored by the holistic-focused Groton Wellness Organization, she stated that “At today’s rate, by 2025, one in two children will be autistic.”
Seneff presented slides showing a remarkably consistent correlation between the rising use of Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide (with its active ingredient glyphosate) on crops and the rising rates of autism. Her research also reveals that the side effects of autism mimic glyphosate toxicity and deficiencies.

Most scientists ‘can’t replicate studies by their peers’
By Tom Feilden 22 February 2017
Science is facing a “reproducibility crisis” where more than two-thirds of researchers have tried and failed to reproduce another scientist’s experiments, research suggests.
This is frustrating clinicians and drug developers who want solid foundations of pre-clinical research to build upon.
From his lab at the University of Virginia’s Centre for Open Science, immunologist Dr Tim Errington runs The Reproducibility Project, which attempted to repeat the findings reported in five landmark cancer studies.
“The idea here is to take a bunch of experiments and to try and do the exact same thing to see if we can get the same results.”
You could be forgiven for thinking that should be easy. Experiments are supposed to be replicable.
The authors should have done it themselves before publication, and all you have to do is read the methods section in the paper and follow the instructions.
Sadly nothing, it seems, could be further from the truth.
After meticulous research involving painstaking attention to detail over several years (the project was launched in 2011), the team was able to confirm only two of the original studies’ findings.
Two more proved inconclusive and in the fifth, the team completely failed to replicate the result.
“It’s worrying because replication is supposed to be a hallmark of scientific integrity,” says Dr Errington.
Concern over the reliability of the results published in scientific literature has been growing for some time.

An Open Letter to Daniel Summers, MD
Note:  Thanks to Anne for this open letter to Massachusetts Pediatrician Dr. Daniel Summers.  We need to ask doctors by name how they can justify vaccine injury without batting an eye.
By Anne Dachel
Toxicity studies have never been done on either the mercury additive thimerosal or the aluminum used in vaccines.  (And yes, thimerosal is still in large amounts in the flu vaccine given to pregnant women and babies as young as six months.  In addition, while American children have reduced levels of mercury in their other vaccines, no such protection is afforded children in poor countries where vaccines are laced with full doses of thimerosal.)
The Danish research that you cited as independent comes from Dr. Poul Thorsen, the principal researcher who is under indictment for 22 counts of wire fraud and money laundering by the U.S. government, having stolen over $1 million in research funding paid for by the U.S taxpayers.  How reliable do you think his work is?
What Kennedy is offering is $100,000 for anyone who can produce the reputable science showing that injecting mercury into humans is safe. (And the 19 easily flawed and manipulated population studies that officials use just don’t make it. They are proof of nothing.) Where are the toxicity studies? Where are the animal studies?
There are none.
Parents who’ve looked into the issue of vaccine safety see huge holes in your arguments and a lot of omissions.

Vaccine Test Results
First results of vaccine investigations
Translated by Erwin Alber from the German original Erste Ergebnisse der Impfstoffuntersuchungen published in Hans Tolzin’s newsletter impf report
(ht) In 2016, several thousand euros were donated to the non-profit association AGBUG e. V. for the investigation of the contents of currently used vaccines. We would like to thank all those who have contributed to this.
Originally, it was intended to only test the vaccines for their mercury content. The association has then however extended the focus of the investigation to include all searchable elements.
AGBUG has now published the results of the first batch on its website, so far without any evaluation! All those of you who have are knowledgeable about the toxic effects of particular elements are invited to contribute their expertise. Please send your feedback by e-mail to redaktion@impf-report.de or post under this article as a comment.

Erste Ergebnisse der Impfstoffuntersuchungen
(ht) Im Jahr 2016 wurden dem gemeinnützigen Verein AGBUG e. V. mehrere Tausend Euro für die Untersuchung gängiger Impfstoffe auf die enthaltenen Elemente gespendet. Allen, die dazu beigetragen haben, sei an dieser Stelle noch einmal herzlich gedankt.
Ursprünglich sollten die Impfstoffe nur auf ihren Quecksilbergehalt hin untersucht werden. Der Verein hat den Focus dann aber auf alle untersuchbaren Elemente erweitert.
AGBUG hat nun die Untersuchungsergebnisse der ersten Charge auf seiner Webseite veröffentlicht. Bisher ohne jede Bewertung! Alle, die Ahnung haben über die giftige Wirkung bestimmter Elemente, sind hiermit eingeladen, ihr Wissen einzubringen. Rückmeldungen bitte per Email an redaktion@impf-report.de oder unter diesem Beitrag als Kommentar.

Impfen – (k)eine leichte Entscheidung?
Warum eine Plausibilitätsprüfung notwendig ist
Impfungen sind nicht ohne Risiken und rechtlich gesehen Körperverletzungen, die der mündigen Einwilligung bedürfen. Um diese mündige Einwilligung geben zu können, sollten wir vor unserer Entscheidung zumindest eine Plausibilitätsprüfung vornehmen. Diese sollte sich als Erstes mit der Frage beschäftigen, ob es überzeugende Beweise für den Nutzen der Impfungen und für ihre Sicherheit gibt. Die entscheidende Frage ist also: Sind Geimpfte gesünder als Ungeimpfte?
Kein direkter Wirksamkeitsnachweis
Eigenartig ist nun, dass weder bei der Zulassung eines Impfstoffs noch während seines massenhaften Einsatzes überprüft wird, ob Geimpfte tatsächlich seltener erkranken bzw. gesünder sind als Ungeimpfte. Man misst bei der Zulassung statt dessen die Höhe des sogenannten “Antikörpertiters” im Blut. Meßbare Antikörper sind jedoch kein eindeutiger Beleg für Immunität. Er wird von den zuständigen Experten deshalb auch einen “Surrogatmarker” (“Ersatzmeßgröße”) genannt. Da die Antikörper auch aus schulmedizinischer Sicht nicht der einzige Bestandteil der Immunabwehr sind, kann ein Mensch auch ohne meßbaren Titer immun sein. Dazu kommt, dass es zahlreiche Beispiele (z. B. bei Tetanus) dafür gibt, dass auch vorhandene Antikörper eine Erkrankung nicht verhindern konnten.
Die Frage, welche wissenschaftliche Beweise es dafür gibt, dass die gemessenen Antikörper einen Erkrankungsschutz darstellen, können die befragten Experten regelmäßig nicht beantworten. Entsprechend Beobachtungsstudien wären jedoch jederzeit einfach durchzuführen.

Vaccine News – Dr. Suzanne Humphries, M.D. – Vaccine Strain of Measles Virus Found in Measles

Dirty Vaccines: Every Human Vaccine Tested Was Contaminated With Metals and Debris in New Study
Researchers examining 44 samples of 30 different vaccines found dangerous contaminants, including red blood cells in one vaccine and metal toxicants in every single sample tested – except in one animal vaccine.
Using extremely sensitive new technologies not used in vaccine manufacturing, Italian scientists reported they were “baffled” by their discoveries which included single particles and aggregates of organic debris including red cells of human or possibly animal origin and metals including lead, tungsten, gold, and chromium, that have been linked to autoimmune disease and leukemia.
In the study, published this week in the International Journal of Vaccines and Vaccination, the researchers led by Antoinetta Gatti, of the National Council of Research of Italy and the Scientific Director of Nanodiagnostics, say their results “show the presence of micro- and nano-sized particulate matter composed of inorganic elements in vaccine samples” not declared in the products’ ingredients lists.
Lead particles were found in the cervical cancer vaccines, Gardasil and Cevarix, for example, and in the seasonal flu vaccine Aggripal manufactured by Novartis as well as in the Meningetec vaccine meant to protect against meningitis C.
Samples of an infant vaccine called Infarix Hexa (against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, hepatitis B, poliomyelitis and haemophilus influenzae type B) manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline was found to contain stainless steel, tungsten and a gold-zinc aggregate.
Other metal contaminants included platinum, silver, bismuth, iron, and chromium. Chromium (alone or in alloy with iron and nickel) was identified in 25 of the human vaccines from Italy and France that were tested.
GSK’s Fluarix vaccine for children three years and older contained 11 metals and aggregates of metals. Similar aggregates to those identified in the vaccines have been shown to be prevalent in cases of leukemia, the researchers noted.
Many of the vaccines contained iron and iron alloys which, according to the researchers, “can corrode and the corrosion products exert a toxicity affecting the tissues”.
The researchers supply an image of an area in a drop of Sanofi Pasteur MSD’s Repevax (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, polio) vaccine “where the morphology of red cells – we cannot tell whether they are human or animal- is clearly visible” along with the presence of “debris” composed of aluminum, bromine, silicon, potassium and titanium.
Feligen, the only veterinary vaccine tested in the 44 total vaccines sampled, proved to be the only sample free from inorganic contamination.

Study – New Quality-Control Investigations on Vaccines: Micro-and Nanocontamination
International Journal of Vaccines and Vaccination
Abstract
Vaccines  are  being  under  investigation  for  the  possible  side  effects  they  can cause. In order to supply new information, an electron-microscopy investigation method was applied to the study of vaccines, aimed at verifying the presence of solid contaminants by means of an Environmental Scanning Electron Microscope equipped  with  an  X-ray  microprobe.  The  results  of  this  new  investigation  show the presence of micro- and nanosized particulate matter composed of inorganic elements in vaccines’ samples which is not declared among the components and whose unduly presence is, for the time being, inexplicable. A considerable part of  those  particulate  contaminants  have  already  been  verified  in  other  matrices and  reported  in  literature  as  non  biodegradable  and  non  biocompatible.  The evidence  collected  is  suggestive  of  some  hypotheses  correlated  to  diseases  that are mentioned and briefly discussed.

Parents of children with autistic spectrum disorder report extreme fatigue
Pamela Cowan, Regina Leader-Post
Published on: January 13, 2017
For more than two years, Sarah Elizabeth Ivens was fascinated to work one-on-one with children who have autism spectrum disorder.
“It’s amazing how the mind can work differently,” she said.
As she got to know the childrens’ families, Ivens was struck by the many challenges they juggled and their high level of fatigue.
“Fatigue is a sense of exhaustion that cannot be resolved by getting rest,” she said. “It’s not just being tired. If you’re tired, then you can go to bed early, sleep in and the next day you’re feeling better. That’s not the case with fatigue.”
Fatigue impacts a person’s physical and mental capacities.
Ivens completed her honours degree in psychology at the University of Victoria, and is now a PhD student in clinical psychology at the University of Regina.
Her Victoria experience spurred her to take a closer look at parents’ experiences for her master’s thesis, titled Fatigue in parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders: The role of parental and child factors for mothers and fathers.
“We do know from other research that fatigue is problematic for parents in general and that it can really have a big impact on their well-being and their child rearing, which results in less-effective parenting,” Ivens said.
Past research focused on mothers. For her thesis, Ivens surveyed 112 parents of children with autism between the ages of two and 12 years, with the average age being seven.
“The kids had been diagnosed three years prior, so this was not families going through the transition of learning to deal with the diagnosis,” Ivens said. “These were parents who were doing it for a few years.”
Of those answering the online questionnaires for her 2015 study, 78 were mothers and 34 were fathers.
Getting dads involved was important. In many studies, only 10 per cent are fathers, she said.
“I think their answers and experiences are really getting lost in the noise,” Ivens said.
According to existing literature, mothers report being more fatigued than fathers, the 31-year-old said.
Her survey echoed that finding.

Merck Created Hit List to “Destroy,” “Neutralize” or “Discredit” Dissenting Doctors
By Jim Edwards May 6, 2009
Merck made a “hit list” of doctors who criticized Vioxx, according to testimony in a Vioxx class action case in Australia. The list, emailed between Merck employees, contained doctors’ names with the labels “neutralise,” “neutralised” or “discredit” next to them.
According to The Australian, Merck emails from 1999 showed company execs complaining about doctors who disliked using Vioxx. One email said:
We may need to seek them out and destroy them where they live …
The plaintiffs’ lawyer gave this assessment:
It gives you the dark side of the use of key opinion leaders and thought leaders … if (they) say things you don’t like to hear, you have to neutralise them … It does suggest a certain culture within the organisation about how to deal with your opponents and those who disagree with you.
The Australian:
The court was told that James Fries, professor of medicine at Stanford University, wrote to the then Merck head Ray Gilmartin in October 2000 to complain about the treatment of some of his researchers who had criticised the drug.
“Even worse were allegations of Merck damage control by intimidation,” he wrote, … “This has happened to at least eight (clinical) investigators … I suppose I was mildly threatened myself but I never have spoken or written on these issues.”
The allegations come on the heels of revelations that Merck created a fake medical journal — the Australasian Journal of Bone and Joint Medicine — in which to publish studies about Vioxx; had pop songs commissioned about Vioxx to inspire its staff, and paid ghostwriters to draft articles about the drug.

New Merck Allegations: A Fake Journal; Ghostwritten Studies; Vioxx Pop Songs; PR Execs Harass Reporters
By Jim Edwards April 23, 2009
Federal prosecutors in the U.S. will be reading with amusement the Australian press’s coverage of a class action trial down under for patients who took Merck’s now-withdrawn painkiller Vioxx.
Details emerging in Oz make some of the antics that Merck’s American counterparts got up to look tame by comparison. For example, in Australia, Merck allegedly:
Had a doctor sign his name to an entirely ghostwritten journal article even though a Merck staffer had complained that the data within it was based on “wishful thinking.”
Created a fake “peer-reviewed” journal, the “Australasian Journal of Bone and Joint Medicine,” in which to publicize pro-Vioxx articles.
Created a Ricky Martin-style pop song to get Merck sales reps all jazzed up about Vioxx (lyrics below!).
During the trial, Merck has employed an unusually aggressive set of PR consultants, some of whom have even followed reporters into the bathroom to make sure they got the story “right.”
Hatched a Blackadder-style “cunning plan” to seed seminars with speakers who were sympathetic to Vioxx but under instructions not to mention the brand name too often.
Regarding the “wishful thinking” study, The Age reports on these emails turned over in the trial:
Email from Merck senior researcher Briggs Morrison, August 2001:
“That seems wishful thinking, not a critical interpretation of the data … The data appears to have been interpreted to support a preconceived hypothesis.”
The claim was nonetheless included in the final version of the article, which Merck employees sent to US cardiologist Dr Marv Konstam for approval.
Dr Konstam was named as the article’s lead author when it was published in the medical journal Circulation in October 2001
The Australian describes the fake journal. And The Age notes that the journal was “designed to resemble a peer-reviewed publication and reprinted previously published articles.”

Merck target of Vioxx federal grand jury probe
Mon Mar 23, 2009
Merck & Co said on Monday that it has been advised it is a target of a U.S. grand jury investigation involving its withdrawn pain drug Vioxx.
The company had previously disclosed the government probe, which has been ongoing since 2004. But it only last week received a letter from the U.S. Attorney’s office for the District of Massachusetts informing the drugmaker it is a target of the grand jury investigation, Merck said.
The probe involves Merck’s research, marketing and selling activities regarding Vioxx, the once $2.5 billion a year drug that was pulled from the market in September 2004 after a study showed it doubled the risk of heart attack and stroke in long-term users.
Merck said it has responded and will continue to respond to requests from the U.S. Attorney for documents and information in connection with the probe. The investigation includes subpoenas for witnesses to appear before a grand jury, the company has said in securities filings.
The New Jersey-based drugmaker was sued by tens of thousands of former Vioxx users who claimed to have been injured by the arthritis medicine.
After winning the majority of product liability trials that reached a jury, Merck agreed to pay $4.85 billion to settle personal injury claims from former users who had suffered heart attacks and strokes.

Study – Investigating Viruses in Cells Used to Make Vaccines; and Evaluating the Potential Threat Posed by Transmission of Viruses to Humans
Principal Investigator: Arifa S. Khan, PhD
General Overview
The emergence of pathogenic virus infections like influenza and HIV have created an urgent need for new vaccines.
Virus-based vaccines are made in living cells (cell substrates). Some manufacturers are investigating the use of new cell lines to make vaccines. The continual growth of cell lines ensures that there is a consistent supply of the same cells that can yield high quantities of the vaccine.
In some cases the cell lines that are used might be tumorigenic, that is, they form tumors when injected into rodents. Some of these tumor-forming cell lines may contain cancer-causing viruses that are not actively reproducing. Such viruses are hard to detect using standard methods. These latent, or “quiet,” viruses pose a potential threat, since they might become active under vaccine manufacturing conditions. Therefore, to ensure the safety of vaccines, our laboratory is investigating ways to activate latent viruses in cell lines and to detect the activated viruses, as well as other unknown viruses, using new technologies. We will then adapt our findings to detect viruses in the same types of cell substrates that are used to produce vaccines. We are also trying to identify specific biological processes that reflect virus activity.
These methods will enable FDA scientists to help manufacturers to determine whether their specific cell substrate is safe to use for vaccine production. The methods our laboratory are developing and testing will help to ensure the production of safe and effective vaccines in two ways: 1) FDA will be able to develop testing guidelines for manufacturers who use new cell substrates for producing vaccines; and 2) FDA will publish the new methods it develops in peer-reviewed scientific journals, thus making them readily accessible to all manufacturers.
We are also evaluating the risk of retrovirus infections in humans. (Retroviruses are RNA viruses that use an enzyme called reverse transcriptase (RT) to replicate; RNA is the de-coded form of DNA). Simian foamy virus (SFV) can be transmitted from nonhuman primates (e.g., monkeys) to humans. Although there is no evidence that SFV causes disease, the virus can remain in a lifelong quiet state in the DNA after infection. Moreover, two individuals in Africa were recently found to be infected with both HIV-1 and SFV. Therefore, it is important to determine if SFV poses a threat to human health and to understand how the virus spreads in order to create strategies for controlling human infections. Such work will also help FDA to develop a new policy regarding blood donation by individuals working with nonhuman primates and implementing formal safety guidelines for people working with SFV-infected animals. We are also investigating the consequences of dual SFV and HIV-1 infection in the monkey model.

Dr. Suzanne Humphries, M.D. – Vaccine Strain of Measles Virus Found in Measles Outbreaks
February 21, 2017
Health Impact News Editor Comments
Dr. Suzanne Humphries is a practicing nephrologist (kidney physician). In this lecture (video below), she addresses a study done in Croatia [1] where a child who was vaccinated with the MMR vaccine was tested positive for the measles vaccine strain Schwarz eight days after vaccination.
This was a significant finding, because the child’s symptoms were thought to be similar to rubella, and without testing, the sickness would have been possibly mis-diagnosed as rubella, or the wild-type strain of measles the vaccine is designed to protect against.
This concept of “shedding,” where the child comes down with the disease from the virus in the vaccine itself, surprised the researchers:
Virus excretion in vaccinees has been reported before, but to our knowledge, this is documented for the first time for the Schwarz vaccine strain. [1]
Since 2010, this phenomena of vaccine shedding with measles in the MMR vaccine has been observed in at least two other studies:
Differentiating the wild from the attenuated during a measles outbreak. Paediatrcis and Child Health, 2012:
In the midst of a local measles outbreak, a recently immunized child was investigated for a new-onset measles-type rash. Nucleic acid testing identified that a vaccine-type measles virus was being shed in the urine. Clinically differentiating measles from a nonmeasles rash is challenging, but can be supported by a thorough medical history evaluation. Rashes are expected to occur after immunization; nucleic acid testing can be used when it is difficult to differentiate between wild and attenuated strains. [2]
Case of vaccine-associated measles five weeks post-immunisation, British Columbia, Canada, Eurosurveillance, 2013:
We describe a case of vaccine-associated measles in a two-year-old patient from British Columbia, Canada, in October 2013, who received her first dose of measles-containing vaccine 37 days prior to onset of prodromal symptoms. Identification of this delayed vaccine-associated case occurred in the context of an outbreak investigation of a measles cluster. [3]
Are health officials testing cases of measles in the current outbreak in the United States, to determine if the measles strain is the wild strain of the vaccine strain?
Not likely, and it is not likely that the mainstream media “TV doctors” will even discuss this as they falsely vilify parents who choose not to administer the MMR vaccine to their children as the cause of these outbreaks. Some of these cases are confirmed to be among those who have received the MMR vaccine, and for those who have not been vaccinated, is it possible they were infected from those recently vaccinated when the vaccine was still “shedding,” and that the vaccine-strain of measles was passed on from the vaccinated child to the unvaccinated child?

Trump asks about autism in educators meeting
By Jordan Fabian – 02/14/17 12:05 PM EST
President Trump quizzed a school principal about autism during a meeting with educators at the White House on Tuesday.
“Have you seen a big increase in the autism with the children?” Trump asked Jane Quenneville, the principal of a Virginia public school specializing in special education.
Quenneville responded that she has, and noted her school “has shifted its population” to accommodate more students with autism.
“So what’s going on with autism?” Trump asked. “When you look at the tremendous increase, it’s really such an incredible — it’s really a horrible thing to watch, the tremendous amount of increase. Do you have any idea?”
Quenneville didn’t provide an explanation, but cited statistics showing that autism affects 1 in 66 or 68 children.
“Maybe we can do something,” Trump said, claiming the rate is “coming in even lower.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released data last March that showed 1 in 68 school-aged children are diagnosed with autism, unchanged from its previous estimate.
Trump did not say what he believes causes autism, but in the past he has linked vaccines to what he calls an “epidemic” of the condition. And 10 days before taking office, he met with leading vaccine skeptic Robert Kennedy Jr.
Scientists and researchers have found no evidence connecting vaccines to developmental disorders such as autism.
“Studies have shown that there is no link between receiving vaccines and developing [autism],” according to the CDC.

Parent of autistic teen sues CDC to allow vaccine whistleblower testimony
by sattkisson on February 13, 2017
The father of an autistic child has filed a federal lawsuit against the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in his son’s medical malpractice case. Rolf Hazlehurst is attempting to force CDC to let a vaccine whistleblower scientist, Dr. William Thompson, testify in the case of 17-year old Yates Hazlehurst. Dr. Thompson, a senior scientist at CDC has told Congress that he and his CDC colleagues manipulated data and destroyed evidence to downplay a link their study discovered between autism and vaccines in African American boys. CDC had earlier blocked Dr. Thompson from testifying.
Original story follows
A current senior scientist at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), William Thompson, stunned the scientific community in 2014 when he confessed that he and his colleagues have allegedly conspired to cover up or downplay links between vaccines and autism, particularly in African American boys. Thompson alleges their actions included literally sorting through and throwing away data that they didn’t want made public. However, Thompson revealed he saved original copies of the material in a safe, contacted an attorney, and sought whistleblower protection. He has provided the material to Congress. Pharmaceutical industry interests have successfully lobbied to prevent hearings and investigations into the alleged scientific fraud. (The accused CDC officials–William Thompson’s colleagues–deny they did anything unethical or illegal.)
Now comes word that CDC Director Thomas Frieden has blocked Thompson from testifying in a medical malpractice case brought on behalf of 16-year old Yates Hazlehurst alleging that Yates’ autism resulted from vaccine injuries.

CDC Responds to Allegation it Omitted Vaccine-Autism Study Link
by sattkisson on August 28, 2014
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is responding to a charge from one of its own senior scientists that it omitted key data in a 2004 study that would have revealed a link between autism and a commonly-required childhood vaccine, MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella).
he allegation was made by CDC epidemiologist William Thompson in a statement this week issued through his attorney. It states: “I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism.”
It is highly unusual, if not unprecedented, for a sitting CDC senior scientist to blow the whistle on alleged scientific misconduct involving a study article that he co-authored. In this instance, the impact of the charge is magnified by more than a decade of allegations from autism advocates who say the federal government and pharmaceutical interests have worked to downplay or hide associations between vaccines and autism.
A spokesman for the journal Pediatrics today said the publication stands by the study despite the news. “There’s a standard process that journals follow when an article is questioned,” said the spokesman. “Those discussions took place between the editors of Pediatrics and the authors of this study, and the editors concluded the research was appropriately conducted.” Pediatrics is published by the American Academy of Pediatrics, which accepts vaccine industry funding.
The Director of the CDC Immunization Safety Office, Dr. Frank DeStefano, is a co-author of the now-questioned study which has been widely-cited to dispel an MMR-autism link. DeStefano is frequently quoted as an expert who debunks vaccine-autism ties.
“I stand by the research and the conclusions in our 2004 paper, and I’ll reiterate that the evidence, thus far, the weight of the evidence, is against a causal association between vaccines and autism,” DeStefano told me in a telephone interview this week.

How Independent Are Vaccine Defenders?
By Sharyl Attkisson CBS July 25, 2008, 6:20 PM
For years some parents and scientists have raised concerns about vaccine safety, including a possible link to autism and ADD. Many independent experts have sided with government officials and other scientists who say there’s no possible connection. But how “independent” are they? CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson shares here’s what she found.
They’re some of the most trusted voices in the defense of vaccine safety: the American Academy of Pediatrics, Every Child By Two, and pediatrician Dr. Paul Offit.
But CBS News has found these three have something more in common – strong financial ties to the industry whose products they promote and defend.
The vaccine industry gives millions to the Academy of Pediatrics for conferences, grants, medical education classes and even helped build their headquarters. The totals are kept secret, but public documents reveal bits and pieces.
A $342,000 payment from Wyeth, maker of the pneumococcal vaccine – which makes $2 billion a year in sales.
A $433,000 contribution from Merck, the same year the academy endorsed Merck’s HPV vaccine – which made $1.5 billion a year in sales.
Another top donor: Sanofi Aventis, maker of 17 vaccines and a new five-in-one combo shot just added to the childhood vaccine schedule last month.
Every Child By Two, a group that promotes early immunization for all children, admits the group takes money from the vaccine industry, too – but wouldn’t tell us how much.
A spokesman told CBS News: “There are simply no conflicts to be unearthed.” But guess who’s listed as the group’s treasurers? Officials from Wyeth and a paid advisor to big pharmaceutical clients.
Then there’s Paul Offit, perhaps the most widely-quoted defender of vaccine safety.
He’s gone so far as to say babies can tolerate “10,000 vaccines at once.”
This is how Offit described himself in a previous interview: “I’m the chief of infectious disease at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and a professor of pediatrics at Penn’s medical school,” he said.
Offit was not willing to be interviewed on this subject but like others in this CBS News investigation, he has strong industry ties. In fact, he’s a vaccine industry insider.

Leading Dr.: Vaccines-Autism Worth Study
CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson wrote this story for CBSNews.com.
Jordan King was a typical baby. His parents called him vocal and vivacious.
Then just before age 2, after a large battery of vaccinations, he simply withdrew from the world.
“The real scary thing was when I noticed he wasn’t looking at us any more in the eyes,” Mylinda King, Jordan’s mother, said.
William Mead was a Pottery Barn baby model and met all the typical milestones. Then, also at age 2, after a set of vaccinations, William became very ill and he, too, changed forever.
At first, both sets of parents suspected hearing problems.
“The reason we had him tested for a hearing deficit was ’cause he wouldn’t respond to us,” Mead said. “He no longer used any of his language.”
“We had him tested for deafness, it was that bad,” King said. “I mean, you could slam a book on the floor and he wouldn’t turn around to see what the sound was. It was like he was in this bubble of somewhere else, like he’d left the planet or something.”
Doctors said it wasn’t a hearing problem … it was the brain disorder autism.
In both children, batteries of tests revealed dangerous levels of the brain toxin mercury in their systems. Their only known exposure: the mercury preservative once widely used in childhood shots.
“Our doctor, Dr. Green, said ‘you can stop looking for sources’,” King said. “I know where it came from and it was … when he told us it was the vaccines, you just can’t believe it.”
Now, William and Jordan are two test cases among nearly 5,000 autism claims filed in federal vaccine court. Most claim that mercury, or MMR shots, or both, resulted in their children’s autism.
Government officials and many scientists insist there’s nothing about vaccines that can lead to autism.
“I think it’s important for the average parent to know that the government hasn’t made a link between vaccines and autism,” said Dr. Anne Schuchat of the Centers for Disease Control.

Vitamin D supplementation improves autism in children, according to new study

Vitamin D supplementation improves autism in children, according to new study
Furthermore, children who received vitamin D supplementation experienced  increased cognitive awareness, social awareness and social cognition compared to those who only received the placebo. Vitamin D supplementation significantly decreased repetitive hand movements, random noises, jumping and restricted interests.
The researchers concluded,
“This study is the first double-blinded RCT proving the efficacy of vitamin D3 in ASD patients…Oral vitamin D supplementation may safely improve signs and symptoms of ASD and could be recommended for children with ASD.”
The study also mentioned that the supplementation regimen was well tolerated among the children. Only five children experienced minor side effects during the four-month study period, such as skin rashes, itching and diarrhea.

Study – Randomized controlled trial of vitamin D supplementation in children with autism spectrum disorder.
RESULTS:
Supplementation of vitamin D was well tolerated by the ASD children. The daily doses used in the therapy group was 300 IU vitamin D3/kg/day, not to exceed 5,000 IU/day. The autism symptoms of the children improved significantly, following 4-month vitamin D3 supplementation, but not in the placebo group. This study demonstrates the efficacy and tolerability of high doses of vitamin D3 in children with ASD.
CONCLUSIONS:
This study is the first double-blinded RCT proving the efficacy of vitamin D3 in ASD patients. Depending on the parameters measured in the study, oral vitamin D supplementation may safely improve signs and symptoms of ASD and could be recommended for children with ASD. At this stage, this study is a single RCT with a small number of patients, and a great deal of additional wide-scale studies are needed to critically validate the efficacy of vitamin D in ASD.

Study – Vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acid supplements in children with autism spectrum disorder: a study protocol for a factorial randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial
METHODS/DESIGN:
Children with ASD living in New Zealand (n = 168 children) will be randomised to one of four treatments daily: vitamin D (2000 IU), n-3 LCPUFAs (722 mg DHA), vitamin D (2000 IU) + n-3 LCPUFAs (722 mg DHA) or placebo for 12 months. All researchers, participants and their caregivers will be blinded until the data analysis is completed, and randomisation of the active/placebo capsules and allocation will be fully concealed from all mentioned parties. The primary outcome measures are the change in social-communicative functioning, sensory processing issues and problem behaviours between baseline and 12 months. A secondary outcome measure is the effect on gastrointestinal symptoms. Baseline data will be used to assess and correct basic nutritional deficiencies prior to treatment allocation. For safety measures, serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D 25(OH)D and calcium will be monitored at baseline, 6 and 12 months, and weekly compliance and gastrointestinal symptom diaries will be completed by caregivers throughout the study period.
DISCUSSION:
To our knowledge there are no randomised controlled trials assessing the effects of both vitamin D and DHA supplementation on core symptoms of ASD. If it is shown that either vitamin D, DHA or both are effective, the trial would reveal a non-invasive approach to managing ASD symptoms.

Study – Vitamin D status in autism spectrum disorders and the efficacy of vitamin D supplementation in autistic children
RESULTS:
Fifty-seven percent of the patients in the present study had vitamin D deficiency, and 30% had vitamin D insufficiency. The mean 25-OHD levels in patients with severe autism were significantly lower than those in patients with mild/moderate autism. Serum 25-OHD levels had significant negative correlations with Childhood Autism Rating Scale (CARS) scores. Of the ASD group, 106 patients with low-serum 25-OHD levels (<30 ng/ml) participated in the open label trial. They received vitamin D3 (300 IU/kg/day not to exceed 5000 IU/day) for 3 months. Eighty-three subjects completed 3 months of daily vitamin D treatment. Collectively, 80.72% (67/83) of subjects who received vitamin D3 treatment had significantly improved outcome, which was mainly in the sections of the CARS and aberrant behavior checklist subscales that measure behavior, stereotypy, eye contact, and attention span.
CONCLUSION:
Vitamin D is inexpensive, readily available and safe. It may have beneficial effects in ASD subjects, especially when the final serum level is more than 40 ng/ml.

Study – Clinical improvement following vitamin D3 supplementation in Autism Spectrum Disorder
Abstract
Objective High prevalence of vitamin D deficiency was previously reported in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), but little is known about the efficacy of vitamin D3 treatment in ASD, although data from pilot studies seem promising. We hypothesized that serum vitamin D levels are reduced in ASD and correlate with the severity of disease. Also, we hypothesized that vitamin D3 treatment may be beneficial for a considerable portion of children with ASD. Methods In total, 215 children with ASD and 285 healthy control children were recruited in our study. Thirty seven of 215 ASD children received vitamin D3 treatment. The Autism Behaviour Checklist (ABC) and the Childhood Autism Rating Scale (CARS) were used to assess autism symptoms. High-performance liquid chromatography was used to assess the serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH) D] level. Evaluations of ABC, CARS, and serum 25(OH) D levels were performed before and after 3 months of treatment. Results Serum levels of 25(OH) D were significantly lower in ASD children than typically developing children. Levels of serum 25(OH) D were negatively correlated with ABC total scores and language subscale scores. After vitamin D3 supplementation, symptom scores were significantly reduced on the CARS and ABC. In addition, the data also suggest that treatment effects were more pronounced in younger children with ASD. Conclusion Vitamin D deficiency might contribute to the aetiology of ASD. Supplementation of vitamin D3, which is a safe and cost-effective form of treatment, may significantly improve the outcome of some children with ASD, especially younger children (identifier ChiCTR-CCC-13004498). Clinical Trial Registration The trial ‘Association of Polymorphisms of Vitamin D Metabolism-Related Genes With Autism and the Treatment of Autism with Vitamin D’ has been registered at www.chictr.org/cn/proj/show.aspx ? proj=6135 (identifier ChiCTR-CCC-13004498).

“If your child is one of those who became autistic after receiving a vaccination, please raise your hand.” – Dr. Bernard Rimland

“If your child is one of those who became autistic after receiving a vaccination, please raise your hand.” – Dr. Bernard Rimland
With little fanfare, the 10th anniversary of Dr. Bernard Rimland’s passing was Monday this week (11/21). Dr. Rimland changed the course of the Autism debate forever, and even the New York Times praised him in this obituary:
“Bernard Rimland, who overturned conventional theories about the origin of autism in the 1960s and later forced scientists and policymakers to consider alternative causes and treatments, died last Tuesday in El Cajon, Calif., near his home in San Diego. He was 78. Dr. Rimland’s interest in autism, the puzzling social-skills disorder, and his work on behalf of families touched by it grew out of his intuition as an experimental psychologist and his experience as a father. When his young son Mark received a diagnosis of autism, doctors generally blamed the disorder on cold, distant mothering. In his book “Infantile Autism: The Syndrome and Its Implications for a Neural Theory of Behavior,” Dr. Rimland demolished the cold-mother theory by presenting lucid evidence that the disorder was rooted in biology.
“He was tremendously important to the field, in that he reoriented research from a focus on the parents to a focus on the brain,” Dr. Fred R. Volkmar, director of the Child Study Center at Yale, said. “He also developed the first checklist for diagnosing autism. He was a pathfinder and tireless advocate for families dealing with autism.”
Did you ever go to a DAN! Conference and stand up with hundreds of other parents? I did (in SD, 2004), and it changed my whole understanding of autism. Dr. Rimland was a hero to hundreds of thousands of parents and he is sorely missed! (Tragically, this video was filmed 13 years ago!!)
